A dream team: Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo and Giuseppe Verdi! Giovanna d'Arco was recorded live during the critically acclaimed performances of 2013 Salzburg Festival.
Full of melodies, passion and pathos, Giovanna d’Arco, Verdi’s take on the Joan of Arc story and its legendary heroine, is regarded as one of the great composer’s early masterpieces.
This is the first complete audio opera recording of Domingo as a baritone and the first complete recording of this significant Verdi work in Deutsche Grammophon’s history.
Anna Netrebko is a phenomenon: quite simply, the undisputed superstar – “la prima donna assoluta" (New York Post) – of opera today.
The previous 'Verdi' album announced Netrebko’s long-awaited move into the dramatic repertoire of Italian grand opera. With this Giovanna d'Arco recording she plunges completely into this deep, rich world.
Domingo is a marvel – "The King of Opera" (Die Presse). Widely hailed as the greatest Verdi tenor of his day, even as a baritone, with his distinctive 'bronze' vocal timbre, musical intelligence and sense of poetry, he remains one of our most compelling Verdi interpreters.
Young Italian tenor Francesco Meli is one of the rising stars of Bel canto.
Renowned Verdi and Bel Canto maestro Paolo Carignani coaxes idiomatic style and flair from the Salzburg forces.

“As Giovanna ascends to heaven – she dies on the battlefield, not at the stake here – you get the kind of singing which makes you remember why you love opera.” - Bloomberg
